Quebec City’s oldest theatre, this new production of Les Misérables has broken new ground in terms of its simple and direct staging, high-end cast, and audio quality. With 32 live microphones on stage, nothing was left to chance and the new Sennheiser MKE 1 lavaliere mic proved an invaluable asset. Richard Lachance, vice-president of international development at Solotech, oversees audio production and managed the selection of the required clip-on microphones and wireless systems for the show.

And for such a small theater like the Capitol, this was a real challenge. So, we turned to Sennheiser and their latest innovation, the MKE 1 lavaliere microphone.”
